England notch up 50 in Rome but Championship fate out of their hands

I was actually shocked that happened too, I thought May was awful and the obvious player to swap him with was Tuilagi.. I mean it was Tuilagis first game back so at least if he was awful, he wouldn't have replaced a great player. Burrell was playing extremely well.

As for your comments regarding pro players being better, well that is a given I suppose, and I think we're all guilty of calling someone 'awful' when clearly they're in a superior position to ourselves, but luckily this is not youtube and we can all understand it's 'relatively' speaking :D

I love the way he checked his run (slowed up slightly) so that he chose not to compete for the ball but to smash the guy taking it...

That's a bit strong there Stroudos.... worse than Bakkies Botha?

Healy is no angel, but his record has to be less blotted with incidents that Mr Botha I'm sure...

Wales achieve biggest ever win over 14-man Scotland in Cardiff

I don't think any ban is needed for Hogg. To be honest it was marginally bad...

I'm still struggling to accept it as a red.. I only saw the incident in the slow motion replays and have now just seen it in full time, it actually looks much worse in real time, so maybe red...

I guess it was a shoulder to the head, so no real choice other than to give Hogg a red...

I do agree with you, I think the scoreline was perfect, France played in a way that meant they deserved to be right in the game, and Ireland played in a way that meant they deserved to win it. 22-20 was far better than 22-13..

I think if France had actually won the game, people would be sad for Ireland and BOD not to finish on a high, but they wouldn't be able to deny that France worked damn hard for the victory..

The thing with Healy is I find he is invaluable to the Irish pack, a player of his calibre is definitely a handy thing to have, if he could only sort his noggin out sometimes (perhaps he was trying to bash some sense into himself) and mature a little bit more then he'd be fool proof...

I find that is one thing that is frustrating about players like Jim Hamilton for Scotland, he has great ability and is such a huge powerhouse, but his penalty count has to be through the roof and they're rarely 'good' penalties (ie give the opposition 3 points instead of 5-7), they're always idiotic and relatively pointless and end up costing Scotland a great attacking field position.

It was mentioned by all/most the commentators, I believe both Brian Moore and Eddie Butler both said it was a knock on and mentioned how it is somewhat ironic how in this day and age where referee's go upstairs for nearly everything that Walsh DIDN'T for that situation and it was actually wrong...

I suppose it hasn't really been mentioned because there haven't been any comments on here along the lines of 'ooolala Monsier Walsh has robbed us frenchies' or something like that... I'd imagine if one of those comments came out then all hell would break loose about Szarzewskis' try but as it stands Ireland won so the Irish are thrilled and I think the French are just happy they produced a good performance..

Yeh, I meant to include that part in my comment... I was an idiot at amateur level, you'd imagine as the levels progress you'd become less idiotic? Or at least the trend would follow as such..

Yeh, Phil could be right, she might have a pad of questions she is supposed to ask and she probably was being told to hurry, I seem to recall someone saying 'we might not have a chance to talk to BOD because of the time frames' or something like that.

Maybe I shouldn't be so direct to HER, but definitely the genius that thinks up some of the questions needs a swift kick in the butt to bring them back to earth..
